In fact, Mariah Carey actually acquired one of Marilyn Monroe’s dearest things: her “baby grand white piano” – that’s just how much the songstress loves the late actress.

Carey opted to be involved in the musical remake of the 1959 film because it starred Marilyn Monroe, alongside Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon.

“I first became familiar with this story through the timeless film starring Marilyn Monroe. She’s been an important touchstone throughout my life, so much so that I acquired her treasured baby grand white piano at an auction,” Carey said.

“When Neil Meron shared this new take on the beloved film, I knew I had to be a part of it. To see how this show continues to expand on the film’s legacy — pushing boundaries, promoting inclusion, celebrating diversity — I’m proud to help bring Some Like It Hot for today’s world to new audiences.”
